You will be taught by academics who are professional practitioners in the world of economics and international finance, and who provide specialist advice and in'house training for government departments and City firms and banks. The Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics brings together research and teaching in economics, finance, mathematics and statistics in a single department, which creates significant inter'disciplinary synergies. The research of our academics, many of whom are recognised as world'class experts in their fields, feeds directly into our teaching programmes.

You can go on to study one of our internationally regarded postgraduate programmes in economics, mathematics, management or finance.
